Hola ash afshan,
Botanically, a tomato is the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant. Therefore it is a fruit or, more precisely, a berry, but from a culinary point of view, a tomato is a vegetable.
Other botanical fruits used as vegetables are eggplants, cucumbers, and squashes such as zucchini and pumpkins. Also a bean pod is technically a fruit.
The vegetable is a term used for other edible parts of plants (such as cabbage leaves, celery, and potatoes) which are not the fruit of the plant.
It's a fruit because the part you eat has seeds, as far as I know.
Potatoes, carrots, leafy vegetables have their seeds in the part of the plant we don't eat.
Hasta donde yo sepa, es una fruta porque la parte que comes tiene semillas.
Las patatas, las zanahorias y los vegetales de hojas verde tienen las semillas en las partes de la planta que no comemos.
